Snark vs. Snork

While skimming through idt just now, I came across the word “snark” more than once. It is important for those readers who aren’t up on the lingo to know that snark means “a system failure” of sorts. Not to be confused with Snork (see illustration), a mildly lovable but nonetheless lame step cousin of the Smurf.

Also, there is no such word as Smarf.
